Super Yummy, Super Convenient, Super Food Bites

Disclaimer: I received a pair of Food Groove Mission Super Food Bites to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews! 

So you may have heard me mention a time or two (or 500) that I am currently training for my first marathon. I find myself in these final weeks of running 30-40 miles per week feeling 3 things near constantly - tired, a bit sore somewhere (and not always the same place even) and HUNGRY! That one is in all caps because seriously, I am ALWAYS HUNGRY these days. But, as you can imagine, I have to be a bit more careful about what I eat in order to keep my energy up. Therefore, I am always on the lookout for yummy, healthy snacks.

Lucky for me, I was recently given the opportunity to test out Food Groove Mission Super Food Bites. These super yummy, super healthy, super convenient little snacks pack a big punch. They are made with all natural, raw ingredients that provide long lasting natural energy plus essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Just a few of the incredible ingredients in these powerful little balls of energy include: Organic Peanut Butter, Organic Dark Chocolate, Organic Dates, Manuka Honey, Organic Berries, Organic Acai Powder, Organic Nuts, Organic Chia Seeds and so much more. 

The come in 3 yummy varieties, Mother Earth: a unique blend of berries, seeds and nuts, The Nutty Adventurer: a burst of peanut buttery goodness and Holy Truffle Punch: a pure spark of dark chocolate. I had a hard time picking my favorite, they were all so good, but I think I have to say I liked the Mother Earth the best. 

My favorite thing about these Food Groove Super Food Bites (other than the taste) is that they come in a convenient resealable bag. That way, I can just eat a few at a time if I am only looking for a small snack, and then seal the package back up keeping them fresh and  yummy for later.

The resealable package works especially well for me when I am wanting to eat something not too heavy before my gym workouts. I will open the pack, eat about half, do my Burn Boot Camp workout, and then eat the other half afterward. Previously, I had done this with protein bars, opened it, ate half and then left the 2nd half in my car for after my workout. Except once or twice I forgot about the 2nd half and... well, let's just say when I discovered the 2nd half after sitting in my car in the hot sun all day, it wasn't so terribly appealing and made quite a mess to clean up. Needless to say, I do not have this issue with Food Groove Super Food Bites.

They are also great for a mid-morning coffee break to give you a burst of energy to push you through until your lunch break at work.

Yes, I'm Still Alive...

Hi out there in blog-land. I know I have been MIA for a bit. Been going through a rough spot or two and haven't had the time that I really wanted to devote to the blog as of late. Between a family tragedy (we recently lost our 17 year old kitty a bit unexpectedly) plus the sheer amount of time and energy that has gone into marathon training, well, the blog has kind of taken a backseat. 

Anyway, thank you sticking along for the ride. I will begin posting regularly again this week with a training update. 

Be back soon. In the meantime...
